Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization, or “DNS” as it is commonly referred to, is an approach to optimize the movement system based upon the scientific principles of developmental kinesiology (DK).
The causes of musculoskeletal pain, in particular back pain, is often evaluated from an anatomical and biomechanical standpoint, and the influence of external forces (i.e. loading) acting on the spine. What is often missing is the evaluation of internal forces induced by the patient’s own musculature. The stabilizing function of muscles plays a critical and decisive postural role, which in turn, is dependent on the quality of central nervous system (CNS) control.
Kolar’s approach to DNS is a unique approach explaining the importance of the neurophysiological principles of the movement system. The DNS encompasses principles of developmental kinesiology during the 1st year of the life; these principles define ideal posture, breathing stereotypes and functional joint centration from a “neurodevelopmental” paradigm … Click HERE for full details.
Robert Lardner (PT), speaking on DK and DNS:
– Demonstrate an understanding of the basic principles of developmental kinesiology
– Describe the relationship between development during the first year of life and dysfunction of the locomotor system in adulthood
– Discuss and demonstrate the basis of human movement: support, stepping forward, the biomechanics of motor function, the verticalization process & functional joint centration in postural development
– Evaluate and correct poor respiratory patterns
– Assess the integrated stabilizing system of the spine both visually and utilizing dynamic functional tests
– Integrate corrective exercises based on the DNS functional tests and developmental positions in supine, prone, low kneeling, oblique sit, and quadruped global movements
– Demonstrate how DNS corrective exercises can be integrated with other exercise strategies
*ADDITIONAL REQUIREMENTS BY THE PRAGUE SCHOOL*
Besides the above course fee, each participant is required to register online with Prague School (PS) with a fee of 80 Euros as prerequisite to attend the course.
Without your online registration and PS fee payment you will not be permitted to attend any DNS course nor will you receive the Prague School Certificate of Attendance; thus you cannot take the DNS test and you will not be allowed to register for later advanced courses. Upon your registration and payment, you will receive an automatic email with a link to download the course notes. Hard copies will not be available at the host location.
Please check with us HERE about the course availability before making payment to PS since the 80 Euros is non-refundable.
